A Louisiana man may hold the dubious distinction as one of the first criminals to be sentenced to more than five years in federal prison for using a state-authorized digital driver’s license mobile app to defraud credit unions and banks.

Louisiana was one of the first states to issue digital driver’s licenses (DDLs) in 2018. As of January, only six other states including Arizona, Colorado, Delaware, Maryland, Oklahoma and Utah offer DDLs, according to UP, a finance and travel news website. Other states are developing DDLs.
